DIY: Easy, Refreshing and Organic Face Mask

I saw this article on (the picture is also from, its a easy and refreshing organic face mask using cheap and simple ingredients that you can find in your fridge or local grocery store. In this economy, whats better than being able to pamper yourself without having to spend a lot of money? In addition, this mask is easy to make at home and you do not need previous experience in making beauty products to make this mask. Best of all, natural ingredients are the best for your skin, so lets get to the mask:
If you've been waking up with a dull, tired looking complexion, your skin may need a pick-me-up. My grandmother loves this recipe for giving skin a jump start on it's dullest days. What was her secret, powerful ingredient?
Mint! When applied to your skin, mint is soothing, cooling and great for cleansing. It can help remove the toughest blackheads and leave skin softer and clearer--not to mention oh so refreshed!
What you'll need:
2 large cucumbers (chopped)
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves (chopped very finely)
2 tbsp. plain unflavored yogurt
1tbsp. lemon juice
What to do:
1. Peel the cucumbers and pulse them in a food processor or blender until they become a smooth consistency. Strain the pureed cucumber through a paper towel to remove all excess water.
2. Mix the cucumber, mint, yogurt and lemon juice in the food processor and pulse until fully combined.
3. Store your mint mask in a jar and keep refrigerated until you're ready to use it. Before you do, microwave it for 1 minute (or heat on stovetop until lukewarm).
4. Apply to cleansed skin (works best after a hot shower) and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water and you'll have fresh, supple skin!
